Not sure if it is possible to remove apparmor from argon, will double check.

Event Timeline

Mentioned in SAL [2016-04-21T09:57:23Z] <elukey> removed apache2 logrotate config manually from argon as temp patch to remove cronspam from root@ (T132896)

Is this still an issue now that no longer has an Apache serving an HTTP(S) redirect? What about argon's replacement in Ganeti?

MoritzMuehlenhoff claimed this task.

This doesn't affect kraz (it uses jessie and not precise, so apparmor is not used) and argon is gone, closing the bug.
